Sorry for my poor English:

I have problems with cyrus.
it's block 10-20 times a day, all days.
Don't crash, but suddenly don't accept any connections and the mua
display the message " the server reject the connection", or "max number
of connections reached".

I'm used two hosts:
1- debian sarge with cyrus and postfix
2- debian etch with postfix

The version of cyrus is 2.1.18-1+sarge2

My cyrus.conf is it:

# Debian defaults for Cyrus IMAP server/cluster implementation
# see cyrus.conf(5) for more information
# All the tcp services are tcpd-wrapped. see hosts_access(5)

Any idea?
